St Leonards Seniors have traditionally raised funds to provide financial support for students who would otherwise be unable to pay the fees and to help finance projects which sustain the additional needs of the School. These donations allow St Leonards to maintain its place as one of the leading independent schools in Scotland.

Whilst many of the larger independent schools have significant endowments, St Leonards relies largely on school fees. In order to provide additional facilities and to improve our buildings, we require additional funds. Seniors’ donations have, in the past, allowed the building of the Music School, Science buildings and the iconic Clock Tower. In 2012, they again generously provided for the restoration of the Clock Tower Chimes, which had been silent for more than a decade. Other funds raised have provided significant support for the Bursary Fund which provides means-tested fee remissions, ensuring a St Leonards education is accessible to as many young people as possible.

Development remains central to our vision for St Leonards exciting future. We currently have an extensive and ongoing programme of refurbishment and development within the school, and we rely on your generosity to fund these areas.  Your donation will support both the conservation of our historical buildings and improved facilities for current and future pupils of St Leonards.  Thank you for supporting St Leonards. Every donation helps us to enhance our pupils' educational experience. We are currently seeking help in the following areas:

  • Performing Arts Centre
  • Boarding house refurbishment
  • Sports Facilities upgrade
  • Martha Hamilton Educational Travel Fund
  • Organ Restoration Fund
